......but do not worry,... it will only be available in a 1/10 scale to fit a Tamiya TT01 electric chassis.
This time not a cartoon / optical tuned model, but as exact as it can possibly be made!!
Actually it works out to 1/9874 scale in order to fit the chassis correctly. The form is carved from 'Modulan' which is the same stuff they use to mock-up full sized cars. Not really a foam, but don't know how really to describe it.
Once all finished it will be sprayed and rubbed down at least ten times until the surface is as perfect as possible.
Then the molding process will start........
The chassis is a regular electric Tamiya TT01 which can be picked up very cheaply and will be much cleaner and easier to use than a petrol one.
The identity of the "maker" will be reveiled at the end of the project,... if successful !!

Some relaxing moments from the artist himself.
first coat of red paint,...
rubbing it down for ever,....
Some explanation from the "CREATORRRRRRRRR" !!!
To spray I use 'Holts professional spray match' The place mixes the paint (AR130) and puts it into
spray cans. The spray nozzle is better than on usual spray tins, more professional I guess.
It has now (hopefully!) had its final coats, although it will need smoothing out with 'rubbing compound' to get a perfect finish. The model is also now fixed to a board ready for the start of the molding process.
Firstly I will create a 10mm gap around the model and make a fiberglass shell. The model can then 'float' in the shell and silicone rubber poured in to create a copy of the shape. Once the rubber has set and the original 'buck' removed I will then be able to start making fiberglass copies.

After a long "time out" our Little Monster designer started again to get the model as perfect as possible.
Until now it has taken many attempts to get it this perfect.
Latest update: 22-03-2016:
After numerous attempts it was not possible to make a good mould of the perfect model to make a small series of bodies SZ.
Time passed and fortunately the idea was picked up by a producer of models / bodyshells.
Since February 2016 it is possible to get a 1:10 body of the SZ, that fits a Tamiya or other chassis.
Do you like to have more information, please ask me.
